    I already have a pair of S2 Sports setup on AUX5 (5A), and from the specs, it looks like each light takes .9A of load (currently 1.8A total).

    https://www.bajadesigns.com/products/S2-Sport-Pair-Wide-Cornering-LED-Amber.asp

    Here's my current upfitter layout:

    AUX1 - unused
    AUX2 - unused
    AUX3 - Baja Squadron Sport Spot (2) - (inner)
    AUX4 - Baja Squadron Sport Driving Combo (2) - (middle)
    AUX5 - S2 Sport - wide cornering (2) - (outer)
    AUX6 - tailgate release

    I also have the S2 Reverse light kit, so I have 2 additional S2 Sports. Any issues with running all 4 S2 sport lights (2 outer fog lights and 2 rear lights) lights off of AUX5 (3.6A on a 5A switch)? I would think no, but just asking...

    Also, I want to use the reverse lights as chase lights and have no desire to wire into the rear drivers light for reverse, so upfitter only install. Am I missing anything?

    4 S2 Sports would only pull 3.6amps so you're good. you have 1.4amps of overhead for any in-rush that might happen. If you were at say 4.8 i'd say NO but you're good.

    Why would you want the front fogs and the rear reverse to come on at the same time though???

    Since you want to run the S2 Reverse kit on a switch only, you'd want the extension harness + upfitter (we sell them on our site at 4x4TruckLEDs.com - links below).

    I try and lay out my upfitters from front to back in the order they come on... so for me:

    Aux1: LP9s (low) - which connect to the LVJ Motorsports Relay System
    Aux2: XL80 (pillar)
    Aux3: Squadron Pros (inner)
    Aux4: Squadron Pros (center)
    Aux5: S2 Pros (outter)
    Aux6: S2 Sports/Chase Lights (GJ Motorsports 3rd Brake Light)

    So I can easily follow which switch is which.


    Sounds like you might be doing the same? Moving the Sports up to Aux 2/3 and then S2 Sport up to Aux4 leaving you that Aux5 for that reverse kit you are going to use a chase lights.

    Adam,

    Thanks for the guidance. I did buy the upfitter and the extension from you already (great job btw and thanks again for your guidance, install was a breeze), so I think I'm in good shape there.

    I also edited the post above and running my triple lights in AUX 3-4-5. I'm leaning towards setting them up on AUX 2-3-4 and the AUX5 for the 2 S2 Sports in the back as a chase light setup.

    The thought of putting chase + outer lights on AUX5 was for street use - if it's foggy, at least it's additional light for visibility.

    I just got my lights rewired (finally) and super happy with the results. I ended up just wiring the chase lights to AUX5, without splicing into the reverse light.

    Adam - thanks once again for all of your support! The extension was a tight fit and only took about 30 minutes to figure out how to best route the extension cables and make it clean.

    I also went ahead and got the S2 Rock Guards for my rear lights.

    My final setup is:

    AUX1 - unused
    AUX2 - Baja Squadron Sport Spot (2) - (inner)
    AUX3 - Baja Squadron Sport Driving Combo (2) - (middle)
    AUX4 - S2 Sport - wide cornering (2) - (outer)
    AUX5 - S2 Sport - chase lights mounted under bumper - amber lens and amber rock guards (2)
    AUX6 - tailgate release
